Detroit Derby Girls to host Elvis-themed bout that includes costume contest, impersonators


DETROIT — The Detroit Derby Girls are hoping fans get all shook up for Elvis night.

Elvis impersonators and a halftime show from the Devil Elvis Show are planned for Saturday, when the roller derby organization hosts a bout between the Grand Prix Madonnas and the D-Funk All Stars at the Masonic Temple in Detroit.

The event also is to include an Elvis costume contest. The Devil Elvis Show is a punk rockabilly Elvis Presley tribute band.

The Detroit Derby Girls league is comprised of five intra-league home teams and three inter-league travel teams that compete at international, regional and local levels.
